A Lake Sunset


The sun setting over Lake Tahoe, a beautiful end to a day.

Hot Air Balloons


I was looking at some old photos today and noticed the ones from a hot air balloon race last autumn. I remember the day; we had to wake up very, very early so we could see dawn patrol. That’s when the run hasn’t risen and a few hot air balloons fly into the sky, where their fires glow in the darkness. It is always magical to be there.  then all of the balloons inflate as the sun rises and everyone watches them float into the air. I love the bright colors of the balloons; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Chicago from the River


I just uploaded more photos from Chicago; we went on an architectural boat tour of the city. It was really informative and engaging! It was a great time of day for photos. My favorites are of Trump Tower. Here they are:

A Day in the Windy City


I’m sorry that I couldn’t post this until this morning; I had no Internet. Yesterday I had a lot of fun exploring the city and getting a feel for the mood in Chicago. We have been staying in a suburb outside the city slew had to ride the train. It was an interesting experience, but stressful on the way back when we were riding at rush hour! When we got into Chicago we took a taxi to Navy Pier. It was really fun there! After that we just explored! Here are all the photos:

There is something about the ocean that makes me feel free. I’m not lucky enough to live near it, so I like to visit as often as I can. I am really missing the sea right now as summer approaches, but hopefully I can take a trip soon. I love traveling, but there are so many places I have never been to. What are your favorite places?

Golf


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love golf! It relaxes me, but at the same time excites me. I play often and take lessons, but I’m still not very good. It doesn’t really bother me. As long as I keep a good attitude and enjoy the scenery, I have a nice time. It is sort of unique for me to play golf compared to my friends, and that is another thing I like about it. It is such an old and special game, and some people don’t appreciate that. It is a way to get active in nature with friends and family.

Golf is my passion, so what is yours?
